That's alot quicker than here in the UK for the nhs psychological services. I'm starting my counselling again next week after a year and a half off due to covid. I'm assuming your in the US, right? Here we have the 'samaritans ' that you can phone and talk to people about your problems. Do you have anything similar over there?

We have like a crisis line that we can talk call, only thing is I used to work in the crisis center and I am employed by the company that has it. Sucks. I’m in the US yes.

Probably good idea to confide in friends and family if I were you so people know what your dealing with. When you say "you messed up" do you mean when you hit the booze? What happened? You were obviously in pain. That's why people drink alot of the time.

I had recently stopped taking my anxiety, depression, ptsd medications as I felt I was doing ok but it turns out that I was not. I knew things were not good and I dove into the bottle that day and I let everything that was bottled up inside me out that night.

PTSD is always with us even if our symptoms aren't bad at the moment. I figure I'll be on meds the rest of my life, and that is better than being in pain. I agree with @Survivor3 about telling friends and family. That way you have support in different areas.

You won't be the first or last person to do something like that. It's quite common in fact. You have to be careful with meds. I've even thought tonight about not taking my meds but I have. I'll probably be on them for the rest of my life. Contact people tommorow and tell them what's going on. Eventually you'll start getting professional help even though it takes time. Try to just be civil with your wife and hopefully she might start changing her mind about things. Sorry it's so hard right now.
